What Is Massage Spa Sexual Abuse?

Criminal sexual abuse under 720 ILCS 5/11-1.50 occurs when a person: “(1) commits an act of sexual conduct by the use of force or threat of force; or (2) commits an act of sexual conduct and knows that the victim is unable to understand the nature of the act or is unable to give knowing consent.”

Massage spa sexual abuse can involve any type of inappropriate, unwanted, or non-consensual sexual acts by a staff member against a client, such as:

  • Sexual comments or remarks
  • Obscene gestures or facial expressions
  • Unwanted sexual advances
  • Requests for sexual favors
  • Unwelcome kissing or hugging
  • Inappropriate touching
  • Groping or fondling
  • Touching of the private parts (including a female’s breasts)
  • Penetration or sodomy
  • Rape or attempted rape

Any sexually inappropriate act during a massage that was not consented to by the victim constitutes sexual abuse. The perpetrator can face criminal charges for this offense in Illinois as well as a civil lawsuit filed by the survivor.

Who Is Responsible for Massage Spa Sexual Abuse?

A massage spa sexual abuse civil lawsuit can hold parties accountable for failing to prevent sex crimes against clients. This could include the massage spa itself for negligence, such as hiring massage therapists with criminal backgrounds or ignoring sexual misconduct complaints.

Businesses can also be held responsible for the acts of their employees without needing proof of company negligence through the legal doctrine of vicarious liability.
